HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2018!

At HerCanberra, we don’t just pride ourselves on shining a light on women of interest—our entire online presence, our social media channels, our printed Magazine and our events all revolve around the one single idea: to make women’s experience of Canberra the best it can be and, of course, to recognise the amazing women who fill our city.

For International Women’s Day 2018, we wanted to look back over the last seven years and share just a small sample of the profiles, interviews, chats and laughs with the women we love.
